Disability Awareness Cartoonist
Poking fun at a serious matter
Cartoonist Dave Lupton creates political cartoons. After a serious car crash he became a wheelchair user and disliked how Disabled people are portrayed as either tragic, pitiable figures or work-shy scroungers and a burden on society. He began making disabled cartoons about the different situations he found himself in, like being confronted by a flight of steps and not being able to get into the bank he’d been using for the past 10 years.
